Emerson has completed its acquisition of the Progea Group, an industry-leading provider of industrial internet of things (IIoT), plant analytics, human machine interface (HMI) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) technologies.
The addition of Progea’s capabilities in analytics, industrial visualization and IIoT will build upon Emerson’s embedded software and control portfolio for manufacturing, infrastructure and building automation applications and enable customers to streamline comprehensive machine and plant control systems to a single partner.
This acquisition will lower total cost of ownership and reduce the need for multiple vendors.
Emerson’s Automation Solutions business executive president, Lal Karsanbhaj, said the acquisition strengthens the company’s ability to provide customers with an integrated package to improve overall equipment efficiency and accelerate their digital transformation journey.
Progea Group is headquartered in Modena, Italy, with approximately 55 employees.
